Euonymus fortunei 'Emerald Gaiety' Hedge Plants Description
Euonymus fortunei 'Emerald Gaiety' is a compact variegated evergreen hedging plant that is similar to Euonymus 'Kathy'.
For a colourful, green and gold variegated Euonymus hedge, see our range of Euonymus Emerald n Gold hedging. It will grow to around 1m and is very tolerant of clipping so it makes a wonderful low hedge. To encourage bushy growth, you should tip trim the top shoots and laterals in May and then tidy up again in September. Any unvariegated growth should be trimmed back to the original stem.
Euonymus "Emerald Gaiety" will grow in any soil and virtually any position,all but the wettest sites, and is suitable for coastal and exposed sites. It gives the brightest colours when planted in full sun but will perform well in partial shade and will even be ok in full shade.
The name Euonymus comes from the Greek for "lucky". The shrub was introduced to Britain from its native China by Robert Fortune (hence "fortunei") in the 19th century. All parts of the plant are harmful if eaten.

These plants are available all year round.
Youll see our recommended planting densities for each size and root type listed next to the products below. We suggest that you use these as a guide, taking into consideration how long youre willing to wait to see your finished hedge. As a rough indication bare roots can be planted at anything from 3 to 7 per metre and cell grown between 4 and 6 - the higher densities here would need to be planted in a double staggered row or zig-zag.
For more information on planting distances please see our planting density advice section

Euonymus Emerald Gaiety hedge trimming should be done April to May.
